Yearbook Order Deadline Extended to April 1
The 2021-2022 South Park Yearbook is now available for purchase on the PTO website!
All classroom portraits Pre-K through Fifth Grade are included, as well as, highlights from the school year such as Halloween, Ice Cream Social, recess, and much more.
The price is $20 for 1; $36 for 2 and $55 for 3.
Yearbooks will be delivered to your child in his/her classroom the last week of school.
For those who may not be familiar with the South Park Yearbook, typically teachers set time for all kids to sign each other’s yearbooks on the last day of school. There will NOT be any yearbooks to purchase after this date so if you would like to order, please don’t delay.
*Please note..if a student does not purchase a yearbook, they will be provided a booklet for classmates to sign on the last day.

Want to learn more about the DPS 109 Caucus?
The DPS109 Caucus is seeking new members. Please learn more about the Caucus here. The Caucus includes 24 Members, plus two alternates, who come from many different backgrounds. The Caucus aims to undertake a fair and comprehensive process for school board candidate endorsement and publicize its endorsed candidates. The 2022-23 term is just beginning and will end in April 2023; five meetings will be held during that time.
Thank you to our South Park community for your generous support
with donating emergency supply items to send to Ukrainian refugees.
Our six DPS109 schools worked together and collected SO many items we had to utilize a second company to help ship them overseas.
